Without any logs or even a config file I'm just guessing, but it sounds
like you are wanting to create an HVM guest but are actually creating a
PV one.

The main difference is the use of
        builder = "hvm"
in your cfg file. xl.cfg(5) has details and xlexample.hvm (normally
installed to /etc/xen) an example.
